I never realised they were so different: understanding the impact of the Labia Library

The Labia Library is an online resource developed by Women’s Health Victoria (WHV) in response to increasing demand for female genital cosmetic surgery, also known as labiaplasty. In order to gain an understanding of the effectiveness of the resource in improving women’s health literacy, WHV undertook a thematic analysis of 2979 free text responses to a user survey that was active on the site between 2013 and 2015. The vast majority of survey respondents indicated a positive perception of the resource, often experiencing a significant reduction in anxiety, and reassurance of normality associated with genital appearance.
